TOP REVIEWS FROM BECOMING A CHANGEMAKER: INTRODUCTION TO SOCIAL INNOVATION
Highly recommended for the change agents who have no background in social entrepreneurship. This course will walk you through step by step into changing the system for the better of humanity habitats.
A course which really challenged me to step outside of my comfort zone and to innovate and create solutions to problems. They give you all the tools to make the change that needs to be made.
It was important in helping students navigate through their ideas through problem-solving and critical thinking skills amongst others. It also broaden ideas to impacting change in the world.
This course is very knowledgeable. I wish to congratulate RLaba and the University of Cape Town for creating such a wonderful and unique course. I have learned a lot. Thank you.
